The Lay of Mortelis

The heroes meet in Nuln
A verse for each protagonist

Mortelis, dour and taciturn
A darkness in his past
His kith and kin, death has befell
Revenge now drives his heart

Daith with bow and keenest eye
stood strong beside his kin

Fair maid, not

Fair minded

Travel Downriver
Travel through the riverways of the empire. Grey clouds on the far horizon but otherwise an idyllic rural scene.
The elves are “not” comfortable nor impressed at the agricultural endeavours.
A bridge blocks the way
A number of days out of Nuln the boats progress is blocked because a toll bridge is down and the guards refuse to raise it.
The captain moors the boat and everyone disembarks eager to find out what is causing the delay.
The summer Lord is feuding with the winter king
Two noble families contesting ownership of the towns resurces and control of the toll bridge. Affection is held between two members of the opposing families but other members are trying to cement their control by staging a riot.

Social engineering and problem solving at bow point complete the boat continues onwards.
The boat goes under, river water is consumed
